Love Or Hate………..Which One Do You Choose? ? ? ? ? ? - Poem by Melvina Germain

What Is Love

Love is a strong affection, arising out of family or a blossomed
friendship. Love can be seen in the adoration of God, a benevolent concern for the betterment of mankind.
Love is understanding- knowing the truth as it is.
Love is sympathetic- feeling the hurt of the one you love.
Love is caring- always wanting to offer a helping hand.
Love is forgiveness- giving the one you love a second chance.
Love is sweet memories- remembering all those special moments.
Love is togetherness, spending quality time together.
Love is compassion- treating each other tenderly.
Love is passion- holding, kissing, loving.
Love is encouragement- always there for the one you love.
Love is unconditional- given my our Heavenly Father.

What Is Hate

Hate is an intense disposition, displaying animosity towards others.
Showing intolerance, pre-judging those considered inferior in the
minds of those who hate.
Hate is an emotion- depicting a very strong feeling.
Hate is a waste of time- spending quality time in a dismal manner.
Hate is sour- to hate is not to love oneself.
Hate is dangerous- may be inclined or driven to kill.
Hate is contempt- regarding others as inferior.
Hate is depressing- unhappy, inwardly miserable.
Hate is despicable- worthy of scorn.
Hate is old- seen through historic knowledge.
Hate is obvious- seen in the faces of diseased persons.
Hate is a disease- affected, burrowed deep within.

    This is a poignant thought process my friend! But is it possible to recognize one, without having known the other? Great poem. (Report)Reply

    I think love cancels out hate, and thank goodness for that. So it's love every time.
    Well presented piece of writing.
    Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

    Mel, sadly as Andy so rightly said they are both part of the human makeup, unless you choose not to use one of them at all. I hate no one, no matter what they do to me. I may dislike some people, but never hate them. As you said Hate is a waste of time. I would rather be helping people, even if I dislike them. I have no time for hate at all. Top marks and thanks for sharing this well thought out poem.
